Linen cardigan and finally a new pattern available

As always I’ve been busy with working and taking care of the family. But I manage to fit some knitting in and today I felt it was time to focus on some blogging.

I have added the Quick Hat pattern to my patterns page.

Click here for a copy and of course it will continue to be available on my patterns page.

I’ve had my sewing machine for a week and a half and I still haven’t tried it out. It’s frustrating to have so little time to do the things one wants to do. It seems like far too much of life is wasted on things we ‘have to do’, like working, cooking and cleaning. *Sigh*.

Enough complaining. Here’s where I am with the cardigan:

Almost done the back.

You can actually see the diamond pattern now, although it’s not as apparent as the original sweater.

    Thanks, I was having trouble seeing them at first because the yarn I’m using isn’t smooth like the cotton/silk the pattern calls for. Overall I’m starting to get frustrated with this pattern because it’s a pain to rip out a row if you make a mistake. I think it’s my own fault for using the yarn I picked. I do think it’s going to be worth a pretty cardigan though.
